Trivia

The outside of the General Store was based on the Mobil petrol station building in Terrey Hills, Sydney. The building was portrayed very closely, including the awning on the side and the worn, cracked step at the front. The petrol station, no longer there, was situated on the corner of McCarr's Creek and Mona Vale Roads, prior to the redevelopment of this area. See more »

Australian journey for kids
15 October 2007 | by adamchSee all my reviews

I just watched this movie for the first time after ten years. When I saw it for the first time as a kid I loved everything about it and began watching the TV series because of it. The best part is the flashback, which is pretty much at the beginning of the movie. In it you get the idea what kind of character Blinky is (his personality reminded me a little bit of Bart Simpson). The other characters are great and even fun for adults, my favorite ones are Marcia and Flap (who talks like Tiny Toon's Plucky, at least in the German version). The music is also an important part of it, since the theme song makes the film. The only thing I didn't like about the animation is that the character's cheeks are getting red when they're giggling, sometimes it seems that they are embarrassed all the time. But after all this is a cute kids movie with a positive message. Don't let the cheap-looking animation fool you. If you saw "Blinky Bill" as a child you will remember it for the rest of your life.
